Lanvin

Spring-Summer 2013 - Alber Elbaz said “It’s time to elevate fashion” and by contrasting all aspects of it he achieved just that. His aim wasn’t to provide a wardrobe but to suggest one, so although all the models were of the same ilk, talk and dangerously slim, he suggested contrasting silhouettes, slim fitting and baggy, rounded shoulders and square shoulders, sporty and elegant. He combined classic and old fashioned with high tech and modern, removing the obvious from classic pieces like buttons and button holes from a suit, making a shirt in leather, adding nylon sleeves to a dinner jacket. There was a touch of glam rock about this collection and without much colour it was definitely more of a suggestion of a look than an actual look you could put your finger on, but everyone loves a good suggestion.
